Since when has “queer history” been a part of the public-school curriculum here in our great State of Florida? While doing research on this newly proposed version of the “Don’t Say Gay” bill (their words, not ours), Republican Representative Joe Hardling, who introduced the bill, is quoted as saying “the legislation would not stop students from talking about their LGBTQ families, nor would teachers be barred from teaching lessons on queer history”. “Queer history”? Did we miss something here?
Previous to this “movement” of the alphabet community, I do not recollect George Washington or Abraham Lincoln’s sexual orientation being taught in public schools? Did generations just entirely miss that part in the history books that said, “On April 30, 1789, the first heterosexual president of the United States took office”? I take it, if today’s politically correct society didn’t have such resistance from those leaning conservative, the history books might be rewritten to say that “bi-curious” Napoleon Bonaparte once said “if the emperor Alexander was a woman, I would make him my mistress”. Their presumption would be completely misleading of course, but hey, anything to make people feel good about themselves.
The fact is, that “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” discussions have zero to do with academics and have absolutely no place in primary school teachings. Florida Governor DeSantis is correct in stating that “schools need to be teaching kids to read, to write, they need to teach them science, history”. Although we are convinced that home-schooling is the only way we will ever move forward for the benefit of our posterity, we are not blind to the fact that many households are two-income families. Therefore, we support FL HB 1557, but only wish it were more stringent.
And to address the scare tactics laid on by Chasten Buttigieg, former teacher and husband to Mr. Pete Buttigieg, U.S. Transportation Secretary, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention states that since 2010, suicide as a whole has increased across all age groups. In 2004, Florida rated #15 in suicide rates, today we rank #8.
This is another example of Florida being forced to fit the mold of another State and a traditionally conservative State being forced to comply with political correctness, be penalized or receive a verbal tongue lashing by our masters in the district of corruption. The gay rights movement began in 1924 in Chicago with an organization by the name of The Society for Human Rights and then in 1955 The Mattachine Society out of San Francisco, CA became the first national gay rights organization. The first lesbian civil and political rights organization in the “united” States was established in 1955 in Los Angeles and the first gay pride parade was in New York in 1970.
Do you see a pattern? None of the roots of the alphabet movement come from any Southern State. It has been forced upon us and we have willingly drunk the kool-aid.
As Florida tries to find a semblance of sanity for herself, we have a fight on our hands.
Why would any self-respecting Southerner continue to allow their children to be indoctrinated by a system that means to force your hand on cancel culture, critical race theory, vaccine mandates, queer history, etc.? We are literally sending our children to schools to teach them an ideology that the majority of parents do not agree with. Does anyone still wonder why “millennials” are the butt of most jokes now-a-days? As a society, we have it backwards on what is most important during our short stay here on earth. Does anyone even remember without a thought why we are blessed to be alive? A little hint … it isn’t to conform to man’s law.
